      Hi 876tch48,

      Spacesuits are actually like small one-person spacecrafts and have all the things you need to stay alive inside them.

      The suits are pressurised so you can breathe normally and they are very large will all the electronics and equipment built it. They are very heavy but of course this is not a problem in microgravity!
